Newton's Second Law:
where ΣF is the sum of forces, m is the mass, and a is the acceleration.
Newton's second law states: sum of forces = mass × acceleration. If a known force was applied to an object with a known mass, how would you predict that object's acceleration?
A) acceleration = mass × sum of forces
B) acceleration = mass / sum of forces
C) acceleration = sum of forces / mass
D) Newton's second law is irrelevant for solving this problem.
